The question I get most often is “Why are you doing this?” (Actually, most often I get looks of concern first. But once the questions start, it’s always the same:
why are you getting rid of all of your stuff? Are you sure about this? Did you think this through?
The thing is, we did think it through. A lot. Over many years. We were working madly just to live in our hometown of Los Angeles. That was never the point. And then one day, we realized we were both unemployed at the same time, and we seized our day. We cut our strings, and took flight. (Well, we’re about to take flight anyway. The plans are set, ut we still have three more days in our giant expensive house.)
